I requested a budget-friendly fix from my Stitch Fix stylist this month, and Layla was off to a wonderful start! The highest-priced item was a dress with price tag of $64. If you haven't seen the first page of this post yet, you definitely want to start there. If you already checked out the first three items and want to see what else Layla sent my way, let's keep going!

Webber Button Detail Blouse
I was immediately intrigued by the Webber Button Detail Blouse from 41Hawthorn ($58) that Layla included in my Stitch Fix shipment. It was a little more professional than I usually wear to work in a kindergarten classroom, but I loved styling the blouse. I kept the look clean and simple it with a tall pair of Drew Fit black flare leg pants from the Limited, a simple statement necklace (similar) and my silver Kate Spade watch. I also a pair of black heeled booties (similar).
Sometimes I wish I had an executive office job just so I could dress like this for work every day. The only occasion I would have to wear this outfit at school is for Parent Night or conferences. I have already have a closet full of clothes that work perfectly for those events so I decided to return the Webber Button Detail Blouse, but I loved trying it on. If you dress in traditional professional attire for work, I highly recommend this item. It's an instant classic for your wardrobe.
Breyson Pleated Tab Sleeve Blouse
I was completely excited to try on the coral Breyson Pleated Tab Sleeve Blouse from 41Hawthorn ($37) when I opened my Stitch Fix box and saw it. I adore the color coral and this blouse was a beautiful pinky-orange shade. I was extra excited because I received a yellow sleeveless version of the blouse in my July Stitch Fix shipment and I have worn that blouse more times than I can count!
I paired the blouse with a pair of white capri pants (similar), my silver Kate Spade watch, my white Mother of Pearl Elisa necklace from Kendra Scott, and a pair of white sandals. The colors and accessories looked great together.
The blouse … well, it just wasn't quite my style.
I know it seems like I look great in everything my stylist sends, but I can assure you that is not the case. Even though this blouse was an extra small, I was drowning in it. There was so much fabric, which added a lot of bulk and made me look heavier. If you can believe it, I'm not pregnant. Nor have I gained 10 pounds in the past month.
I'm just wearing a blouse that doesn't work for my body type.
If I could cross my arms in front of me all day, I would be totally fine wearing this blouse. But since that's not a feasible option, I decided to return the Breyson Pleated Tab Sleeve Blouse.
I am certain that there are some women who can totally rock a flowy blouse and pair it with a belt to show off all their assets. If you are one of those people, I would encourage you to pin it for your stylist. It has a great blouse and I love the color.
If you have my body type, you should pin the sleeveless version instead. You can read more about the Breyson Split Neck Pleated Sleeveless Blouse in this blog post.
